Tan spot is a destructive foliar disease of wheat caused by the fungus Pyrenophora tritici-repentis (Ptr). Eight races (race 1 to race 8) of Ptr have been identified globally, based on their ability to produce different combinations of three necrotrophic effectors (NE): Ptr ToxA, Ptr ToxB, and...
Clubroot, caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin, is one of the most important diseases of canola (Brassica napus L.) in western Canada. While the disease is managed most effectively by planting clubroot resistant (CR) canola cultivars, genetic resistance has been overcome in more than 200...
Post-fire rangeland management is typically a period of rest on the Great Plains of North America, but recent research has questioned if long periods of rest are necessary. This study was designed to test different intervals of post-fire rest from defoliation during the first growing season after...
This thesis first describes the development of novel analytical methods for use in lipid transformations. It continues with the synthesis of vegetable oil-based polyols with high hydroxyl value (OHV) and low viscosity, an example of a lipid transformation. Vegetable oils are amenable to...
Sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA) is a common metabolic disorder in high-producing dairy herds. Diet formulation strategies can be implemented to decrease the incidence of SARA, but some cows in a herd may still experience SARA. The overall objectives of this research were to evaluate if...
Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) pose a risk for foodborne illness that can lead to death. Thermal food preservation to inactivate VTEC also alters food quality. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing has been adopted by the food industry as an alternative to thermal preservation....
Rice bran (RB) is an underutilized byproduct of rice milling industry. RB is rich in insoluble dietary fiber (IDF) but poor in soluble dietary fiber (SDF). Recently, SDF derived from RB has been proven for its superior antioxidant and prebiotic activities which confer human health benefits...
